    enggirl:  Our budget is 20k, I have found things to be on the expensive side but there are always cheaper alternatives. I know people who have paid $7000.00 for their photographer and I am spending waaaaay less than that. Also depends on the venue – ones that have their own catering seem to be more expensive, golf courses, the zoo, Spruce Meadows.

    I found all my vendors for much less than what “the industry standard” was, as I was told by many people at the Bridal Fair , regardless the costs kept going up and what started as a $20,000 budget has become a $30,000 budget.  I can’t imagine what our budget would have been had I just gone with the vendors I saw at the bridal fair.

    I have been told a lot that $30,000 seems to be the average for a Calgary wedding.

    futuremrshaines:  Agreed… The Bridal Fairs always have the higher priced vendors.

    Budget is $25K…. though we assume it will likely stretch to 30. Getting married in Canmore (close enough), but a Calgary bride! I found all of the venues and services to be a bit more expensive here, photog, hair, catering is all a bit more.

    From Calgary, getting married in the Okanagan. I think prices are similar (venue might be slightly more in Calgary as perhaps flowers), but rentals are cheaper! Plus no PST! I suspect our wedding will ring in at 22-25K give or take.
